New Computer, Baby!

Yes! I said it might happen and it finally did! After 10 years on the same machine (interrupted by several spates of using the old 98 back-up box), I finally, finally got a new computer. and what a computer it is!

I got an eMachine (I know - the boards go out after 3-4 years on the older models, so I can only hope that won't be the case with this one) with a 320GB hard drive and dual processor. May be more computer than I need, but so long as I'm very careful and do the best I can, maybe it will last me another decade or so - the last one did and the 98 machine I've been having to work on lately is a decade old. Hell, I still have the old Tandy I first got into computers on with Windows 3.1-3.11! The one I ran the old Renegade BBS on.

And it's not like I should have to upgrade this puppy anytime real soon (he said hopefully). I discussed the features and so forth over to The Rundown a bit ago, so you can surf over there to find out more, if you're interested.

Anyway, the point is that things may be a little slow for the next week or so, as I get everything configured, get the old stuff over here, and learn the new OS, etc, but not completely. One of the things I did during this process was go through the bookmarks and found tons of great stuff I had flagged to discuss, then never got around to (usually because I lost the bookmark!), so I'll get some of those out to you, even though they are dated. But it's obviously going to take some time to get adjusted to all the new-fangledness.

Anyway, hope everyone's having a great day and I'll see you with something more before the day is out!
